Travel Blogs from Barcelona
Barcelona was an awesome experience, and I regretted leaving. However, the rest of Europe awaits, so I cannot complain. I'm going to highlight the activities my parents and I did and what stood out to me.
We stayed at Hotel 1898 just on the El Raval side of La Rambla. La Rambla is a main pedestrian thoroughfare that runs south to the water …
We stayed at a beautiful hotel on Las Ramblas and met up with Megan Clark and took her to dinner at a Mexican restaurant with mostly all american study abroad students there and rachel even saw someone from Carondelet! Great flight and taxis and everything except we didn't realize our UK blackberries would automatically change the time so we were …
Bienvenidos a Barcelona! We are off the ship and safe and sound in Barcelona. The cruise was a blast but as we have explained to some of you directly, we made many new friends during our two week cruise and ended up staying out way too late at night. We refer to the cruise as "Spring Break '09" because that is how it felt. We are too old for that …

... Being the third aquarium we’d visited on our journey so far, we both had to admit we’d seen better and with the high price of entry we definitely felta bit let down by the experience. We headed back out into the late afternoon heat stopping for a beer and dinner along the way to a sight I was really excited to see – Gaudi’s central city apartment. I’d booked to go to the evening experience starting at 9pm, so we could enjoy a drink, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel 1898 Barcelona
I have stayed in some lovely hotels all over the world, and The 1898 is right up there at the top of my list of favourites.
open just 3 months, with a perfect location at the Ramblas AND still at a very reasonable price , one of the few (maybe the only) hotel in the Barri Gotic with a private indoor swimming pool and fitness center, staff is very kind and helpful, would love to return
Wow, What a great hotel! The location is right in the heart of La Ramblas and that's the best place to be if its your first time to Barcelona.
You have to stay here
Husband & I went to Barcelona for weekend & totally recommend hotel 1898 to everyone. Best location, really stylish, excellent service, just cannot say enough good things about it. Will definitely go back again. Only problem is that we won't want to stay anywhere else so will have to go to Barcelona everytime we want a weekend away !!
I just came back from a 1 week stay at the Hotel 1898 and all I can say is that the hotel is fantastic in everyway. The rooms are a good size and the decor is collonial/modern and very relaxing, the bathrooms are spacious and very comfortable. Every room has Free WiFi and this is extremely convenient
The staff were wonderful with us, very helpful and patient with our requirements. And finally the location; you cant ask to be in a better place in Barcelona, it is right in the heart of all the shops and restaurants so you can walk around very easily.
I will definitely be staying there next time I am in Barcelona.
Hotel 1898 is in a perfect location in Las Ramblas, right in the middle of the main promenade. I stayed there for 5 nights Nov. 19-25 and had a pleasant experience with only a few new hotel bumps. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome.
Having looked at many hotels in Barcelona and wanting somewhere central as we were only staying for two nights I booked the Hotel 1898 after reading ther review on this site... and was not disappointed.
We stayed at the Hotel 1898 last week for two nights. We had admired the building whilst walking down the Ramblas looking for the hotel. There is no sign on the Ramblas entrance. When we doubled back and located it by street number, we were greeted by a very smartly dressed genteleman who took our bags for us.
Excellent Excellent Excellent
Me and my wife just came back from Barcelona. We stayed at the 1898 new hotel for a week.
The hotel is lovely with a great location.
The rooms are PERFECT, we did not have even one small problem. The closed pool is very very nice, a bit small but you do not really need more than that.
We WILL be back.
Have literally just returned from a weekend at the 1898, just thought I would post my review for anyone else who's about to go! The hotel had only been open 2 weeks when we were there so it all felt very new and quite empty, don't think many people have been there yet!
